An engaging, well-paced story, told with simple (but not too simple) vocabulary is tough to write, but Cece Bell has nailed RABBIT AND ROBOT: THE SLEEPOVER. Let’s hope it’s the first of a series.

Good buddies Rabbit and Robot (just go with it) are about to have their first sleepover at Rabbit's place and both of them are very excited. Rabbit, a by-the-book kind of guy, has every evening activity written out and planned to the letter.Read more ›
1. Make pizza
2. Watch TV
3. Play Go Fish
4. Go to bed
As the poet Robert Burns famously wrote, "the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray." Apparently, a rabbit's plans too. Robot doesn't want carrots on his pizza; he prefers nuts, bolts, and screws. When he removes all the hardware from the table and chairs, the friends have no place to eat their dinner. Rabbit has a major meltdown until Robot spreads a blanket on the floor and they enjoy an indoor picnic.
Each remaining chapter deals with another item from Rabbit's list. Rabbit can't find the remote to watch TV, then Robot's batteries conk out while the friend are playing Go Fish, and at bedtime Robot is without PJs and has to borrow a pair from Rabbit. By lights out, Rabbit has manages to ease up enough to suggest that maybe Robot can make the next day's to-do list. Maybe.
Channeling Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad characters, Bell creates her version of mismatched friends. While Rabbit always has to have his way, Robot, who resembles an anthropomorphic iPhone, is more easy-going and accommodating. The cartoony illustrations are a lot of fun, especially the ones that show Robot zigzagging around the house on his one wheel. Beginning readers are sure to enjoy this new series. Who wouldn't want a robot for a friend!
